There are three kinds of training opportunities available at CAPS for graduate students in the mental health professions. These include practicum, doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship programs. The practicum, internship and post-doctoral fellowships are open to graduate students currently enrolled in appropriate programs at Rutgers as well as at other universities. All programs provide experience with the range of psychological services offered in a university counseling setting. These include intake assessments/triage, individual and group psychotherapy, crisis intervention, and psychological education and consultation services. Experience in more specialized areas such as multicultural issues, diversity, eating disorders and sports psychology are also available. Our program is individually tailored to the needs of the trainee with an emphasis on the development and refinement of sound clinical skills. Supervision is given by experienced, licensed clinicians.
